True Tea Party Makes Surprise Endorsement

President Obama wins support for lowering taxes, defending Constitution

Tea Party activists made history in recent years and our movement will continue to shape the nation’s future. To fully promote our conservative principles, we at the True Tea Party wish to explain our endorsement in the presidential race.

Tea Party groups revere the Constitution and only one candidate has pledged to fully support Americans’ Constitutional rights. That candidate is Barack Obama. The president favors abortion rights and permitting both straight and gay couples to marry, an affirmation of family values and the 14th Amendment. Mitt Romney opposes both choice and marriage equality.

Illegal immigration concerns Tea Party groups and President Obama deported a record number of undocumented aliens three years in a row, more than a million in all. The president also strengthened border security, causing illegal crossings to plummet. Romney’s plan for “self-deportation” can’t compete.

Real Americans love guns and President Obama’s election set off a flurry of gun sales, thereby promoting gun ownership. On the other hand, Romney trampled on the Second Amendment when he signed a gun control measure as governor of Massachusetts.

National security requires a strong military and President Obama bolstered our armed forces by signing the repeal of the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” ban on homosexuals. He killed Osama bin Laden, won the war in Iraq and he’s leading us to victory in Afghanistan. Romney dodged the Vietnam War draft using academic and religious deferrals.

Promoting limited government, President Obama signed the Budget Control Act of 2011 which cuts government spending by $917 billion. In Massachusetts, Romney increased spending by 24 percent.

No issue obsesses Tea Party activists more than taxes, and here again, there’s no comparison. As one of his first official acts, President Obama lowered taxes on 95 percent of families. He cut 18 different taxes on small businesses. The president’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act alone reduced taxes by $288 billion and Obama extended all Bush-era tax cuts. In Massachusetts, Romney refused to sign an anti-tax pledge while running for governor, and later raised taxes on gas, sales, property, capital gains and business.

For years, true conservatives yearned for health care reform to get uninsured freeloaders off our backs and out of our wallets. ObamaCare achieved that and will lower government costs by more than $1 trillion over the next 20 years. Unelected judges were the ones who called the law’s uninsured penalties a tax and the best way to stop this kind of judicial activism is to let President Obama appoint more anti-tax justices to the courts.

To conclude, Barack Obama clearly exemplifies Tea Party principles better than his opponent. In addition, he makes liberals mad by being so moderate, increases ratings of Fox News and helps Sarah Palin sell enough books to blanket Alaska. Besides, Romney’s father was born in Mexico and he hasn’t released his long-form birth certificate. Therefore we’re proud to announce that Barack Obama has earned the endorsement of the True Tea Party (that’s me, my wife and our two dogs).

To those that are satire-impaired, this is a satire piece.

Haha, funny. I'll have to vote against Obama then because I disagree on the immigration issue.

Wow! That really scared me! For a minute there I thought the leaderless and unfocused Tea Party had found a leader and gone liberal!!

Put your fears aside. Save your fears for the "illegal immigrant from Kenya and his liberal agenda". The Tea Party is still sponsored by the Koch brothers. The Tea Party voters still refuse to do any research into facts or truths. Dont worry, The Tea Party voters still believes FoxNews is the number one news source for fair and balanced programs and information. Therefore the Tea Party voters will never support Obama. They will only support and vote for the candidates sponsored by the people behind citizens united. Wait. What was that? The "people" are corporations? Corporations are people? hhmmmm. I wonder who they will support and why..........
David Ross July 17, 2012 at 06:26 PM
I believe in what the Tea Parties stand for. I believe Fox News is fair and unbalance. I also don't rely on just one news source - I look at all (liberal, libertarian, conservative) and make up my own mind. For your information, there is no such thing as "a" Tea Party. Tea Parties are truly local grassroots organizations that are loosely associated with other Tea Parties. It is not a political party. Most members are conservative or libertarian when it comes to political views. (the following is from Wikipedia): Despite not being natural persons, corporations are recognized by the law to have rights and responsibilities like natural persons ("people"). Corporations can exercise human rights against real individuals and the state, and they can themselves be responsible for human rights violations. One more thing: Can you truly say that the nation as a whole has fared better under Obama than it has under recent presidents? Has the economy improved or lessened under the 3.5 years of Obama's "leadership?"

Online gun sales are actually an issue... According to the FBI, in 2011, more police officers died in the line of duty than at any time since the terrorist attacks of 9/11: 72 officers lost their lives at the hands of criminals, a 25% increase from the year before. With 85% of the firearms recovered in New York City having come here from other states, illegal firearms are a growing issue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdImLTKOBzE
David Ross July 17, 2012 at 07:18 PM
What does the 85% of the firearms recovered in NYC have to do with online gun sales? Are you saying the firearms were either purchased in NYC or online? I doubt that. I would say the vast majority of the 85% were brought into NYC via old fashion ways: cars, trains, walking, etc., etc. Is that only in NYC or nationwide? The 25% increase also sounds a lot worse than it is. Numerically, it's only 15 more officers. Still too high of a number but not an epidemic and definitely not a reason to limit gun sales online or at a brick-and-mortar store.

Koodos, David Ross Liberalism like Socialism is a mental disorder, Matt Johanson's delusional article is just another example. Patrick Shane, another example of Liberalism, anti gun laws have never stopped a criminals from doing there dirty deeds. Just like terrorist, they have a mental disorder, lack of common sense. Laws don't affect them.

The following is also from wikipedia, since apparently this is now the official news source: Wikipedia is an online free-content encyclopedia that you can edit and contribute to. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has described Wikipedia as "an effort to create and distribute a multilingual free encyclopedia of the highest quality to every single person on the planet in his or her own language." Wikipedia exists to bring knowledge to everyone who seeks it. and this too is direct from wikipedia: Given that anyone can edit any article, it is, of course, possible for biased, out-of-date, or incorrect information to be posted. However, because there are so many other people reading the articles and monitoring contributions using the Recent Changes page, incorrect information is usually corrected quickly. Thus, the overall accuracy of the encyclopedia is improving all the time. You are encouraged to help by correcting articles, validating content, and providing useful references. I rest my case.

Because we treasure the Constitution, the True Tea Party supports marriage equality. Supporters of this made a tremendous case at The Great Castro Valley Marriage Debate. Thumbs up from true conservatives who believe in limited government and freedom!

teapartyforobama.com is thrilled to welcome the TrueTeaParty to reality. I hope you all feel that burden lifted like we did when we realised Obama was the only choice this cycle.
